"Life Is a One-Time Gift"



This is about “YOU” not RE! This post is for all of us even though it has nothing to do with real estate.


Let’s face it, without our health it is hard to work and keep a roof over our head. So even though this might have nothing to do with our profession, this post is a very important and just may help us work longer and live longer.


You may be aware of this, however if not, it just might be worth reading.




A cardiologist determined that heart attacks can be triggered by dehydration. Good Thing To Know.  From The Mayo Clinic. How many folks do you know who say they don't want to drink anything before going to bed because they'll have to get up during the night?


Heart Attack and Water - Drinking one glass of water before going to bed avoids stroke or heart attack.


Correct time to drink water... Very Important. From A Cardiac Specialist!

Drinking water at a certain time maximizes its effectiveness on the body.

2 glasses of water after waking up - helps activate internal organs.

1 glass of water 30 minutes before a meal - helps digestion

1 glass of water before taking a bath - helps lower blood pressure

1 glass of water before going to bed - avoids stroke or heart attack

I can also add to this... My Physician told me that water at bedtime will also help prevent nighttime leg cramps.  Your leg muscles are seeking hydration when they cramp and wake you up with a Charlie Horse.

Mayo Clinic on Aspirin - Dr. Virend Somers is a Cardiologist from the Mayo Clinic who is the lead author of the report in the July 29, 2008 issue of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. Most heart attacks occur in the day, generally between 6 A.M. and noon.

Having one during the night, when the heart should be most at rest, means that something unusual happened.  Somers and his colleagues have been working for a decade to show that sleep apnea is to blame.

1. If you take an aspirin or a baby aspirin once a day, take it at night. The Reason: Aspirin has a 24-hour "half-life"; therefore, if most heart attacks happen in the wee hours of the morning, the Aspirin would be strongest in your system.

2. Aspirin lasts a really long time in your medicine chest – years! (When it gets old, it smells like vinegar).


Please read on. 

Something that we can do to help ourselves - nice to know.  Bayer is making crystal aspirin to dissolve instantly on the tongue.  They work much faster than the tablets.

Why keep Aspirin by your bedside? It's about Heart Attacks - There are other symptoms of a heart attack, besides the pain on the left arm.  One must also be aware of an intense pain on the chin, as well as nausea and lots of sweating; however, these symptoms may also occur less frequently.


Note: There may be NO pain in the chest during a heart attack. The majority of people (about 60%) who had a heart attack during their sleep did not wake up. However, if it occurs, the chest pain may wake you up from your deep sleep.  If that happens, immediately dissolve two aspirins in your mouth and swallow them with a bit of water.


Afterwards: - Call 911. - Phone a neighbor or a family member who lives very close by.  Say "Heart Attack!" - Say that you have taken 2 Aspirins. - Take a seat on a chair or sofa near the front door, and wait for their arrival and ........

Great information about the importance of staying hydrated, Jon.  I drink far more wwater now, than in my youth, when Pepsi and Coke were paramount.

Jon- thank you for sharing this information. Hydration is so important, so I'm glad that you wrote about it. And for those who drink coffee, or rather lots of it, be sure to drink water. The coffee itself doesn't dehydrate you but it is a diuretic and you can lose fluids that way.

Interesting. I didn't realize there was a specific time that water should be consumed. My father-in-law has had to go to urgent care twice - both times his issues were due to dehydration. He just refuses to drink water. Argh.

Good morning Jon. Such a terrific post. We tend to recognize the value of our health when we are close to losing it.
